Brookfield Residential has announced the July, 2015 preview opening of Five Knolls, a new, 247-acre, masterplanned community in Santa Clarita. Set amidst five knolls overlooking the Santa Clarita Valley, where Newhall Ranch Road and Golden Valley Road connect, Five Knolls offers an unprecedented opportunity for new residences and modern floorplans. The 494 homes of Five Knolls are built by Brookfield Residential with four other award-winning homebuilders. Five Knolls also includes much-anticipated public parks – including the five-acre Golden Valley Park – and community improvements such a long-sought extension of Golden Valley Road.
“The hillsides of Five Knolls are some of the most attractive settings for new homes in Santa Clarita,” said Brookfield Residential Director of Marketing Alison Gerard. “This community is emerging as a scenically inspiring small world designed around a refreshing new lifestyle for the region.”
Five Knolls advances the tradition of the single-family home. Its six distinctive collections are from an all-star lineup of homebuilders chosen by Brookfield Residential. They offer a palette of varying colors, textures and materials in architectural styles that include Santa Barbara, Spanish, American Farmhouse and Monterey. The neighborhoods are:
* Highglen by Brookfield Residential. A gated neighborhood of two-story detached residences, approximately 3,789-4,235 square feet, with 4-6 bedrooms, 3.5-5.5 baths and 3-bay garages. Highglen homes are anticipated from the $700,000s.
* Monterra by Christopher Homes. A gated neighborhood of two-story detached residences, approximately 3,591 – 3,858 square feet, with 5 – 7 Bedrooms, 4.5 – 6 baths, and a “California Room” for indoor-outdoor living. With 2- and 3-car garages, Monterra is anticipated from the $700,000s.

“Distinguished from the existing housing stock in Santa Clarita, all of the residences of Five Knolls are generous in size and thoughtfully stylish in design,” said Gerard. “They satisfy a thirst among area homebuyers for the latest floorplans and features, including great rooms, creative indoor/outdoor spaces and expansive kitchens.”
Private Club and Public Parks
The social heart of Five Knolls is The Club, a private recreation hub with pool, spa and inviting indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. Walkably close is the new Golden Valley Park, with a mix of open spaces and social gathering spots surrounding an open turf area. It will also have picnic areas, a shaded playground, basketball half-courts and big and small dog parks. Five Knolls’ eight bike and walking trails connect to 30 miles of nearby trails.
In addition to the Golden Valley Park, Five Knolls offers five other public parks, each signified by the knoll for which they are named. Butterfly Knoll features a path that winds through a planted meadow. Sunset Knoll offers unobstructed views of the valley facing west. Orchard Knoll includes a trail through a small orchard with seating area and valley views. Above The Club at Five Knolls is Kite Knoll with expansive turf areas for relaxing and picnicking. And Oak Knoll has the highest elevation of the knolls with scenic overlooks and an oak grove.
The parks of Five Knolls illustrate the sensitivity of Brookfield Residential’s masterplan.
“The community doesn’t sprawl,” said Gerard. “Rather, its neighborhoods cluster around open space, its namesake knolls and meandering trails. The sense of arrival that begins at the rustic entry hints at how scenic and artfully designed Five Knolls is. Even the way the roads curve feel as though there’s more to discover just ahead.”
The Golden Valley Road extension connects Golden Valley Road (from Newhall Ranch Road) all the way through to Bouquet Canyon. Long-sought by the surrounding community, this extension offers a faster, more direct route to great shopping, dining and entertainment in the Santa Clarita Valley. More information on recreation, shopping and schools surrounding Five Knolls is available on its FAQ page.
Although Santa Clarita is the third-largest city in Los Angeles County, with access to some of the finest recreation and employment opportunities in California, it retains its small-town values. For example, it was named number-three among the Top 10 Safest Cities in America 2014 by Parenting Magazine.\
